Pune, March 1, 2021: TalentSprint, a leading EdTech platform and NSE group company, today announced the launch of the third cohort of the pioneering Women Engineers Program (WE) with support from Google. TalentSprint WE were conceived in 2019 to address the gender disparity seen in the tech industry. Given the highly encouraging industry acceptance for previous cohort participants, the third cohort is being scaled up to accommodate 500 participants. The cohort is aimed at first-year women engineering students across India and will commence from May 2021. Young women engineering students are encouraged to learn more about the TalentSprint WE program at we.talentsprint.com and apply if they are eligible. Applications will open on March 1, 2021, and close on March 21, 2021.
Dr. Santanu Paul, Co-founder and CEO at TalentSprint, said: “Since our inception, TalentSprint has run several path-breaking initiatives to close the gender gap in the hi-tech sector. The program has been growing from strength to strength in the last two years and received overwhelming interest from industry, academia, and young women students both for its unique design and exceptional student outcomes. We realize this is just the tip of the iceberg and a lot more work can and must be done to accelerate gender inclusion. We are therefore delighted to deepen our partnership with Google and work with them to create a much the bigger pipeline of young, world-class women software engineers this year.”
